A Little Consideration Leads to the Reduction of Infection
The volume of waste from households is increasing because more and more people are working from home and are staying indoors under the situation of the spread of infection of the novel coronavirus.
We ask for your continued cooperation, in taking out wastes, to sort wastes and to reduce wastes, so as to prevent the spread of infection.
(1)Sort waste perfectly.
Wastes not sorted will not be collected.
When you are at a loss how to sort wastes, make use of the waste separation app or the waste collection calendar.

(2)Do not make the waste bag too full.
If the waste bag is full, the waste may spread during the collection work and the waste collection workers may be forced to touch the waste directly. Bind the waste bag before the bag is too full, and make sure it is not torn.
(3)Put masks and tissue paper in a small bag.
Virus may be attached to masks and tissue paper.
Put masks and tissue paper in a small bag and bind it tightly before putting it into the waste bag, so that the waste collection workers will not touch them directly.
(4)Make efforts to reduce wastes.
Make efforts to reduce the volume of wastes by draining kitchen waste, by finishing all the dishes served to you and by cooking all foods you buy.
(5)Watch out for crows. Use scattering prevention nets.
Wastes scattered by crows must be collected by waste collection workers with their hands. Cover waste bags completely with a scattering prevention net so as to reduce the risk of infection.
Take out your waste in the morning of the collection day, between dawn and around 8 o'clock.
